Inside LADbible Group's recruitment process
While some firms have experienced challenges with recruitment recently, one firm that has actually seen its recruitment performance excel during the past few months is LADbible Group. The media publishing behemoth, which has a global audience in the billions – and has popular brands including LADbible, UNILAD, and Tyla within its portfolio – has increased its headcount by 45% in the past two years. Their huge brand power has played a significant role in making the firm a desirable place to work for many eager candidates. But with offices around the globe, including its headquarters in Manchester and offices in Ireland, New Zealand, Australia and the US, finding the best talent to keep the firm at the top of its game is no small feat.
The company also has the challenge of not just finding skilled candidates, but making sure those candidatese fit into the brand’s culture and ethics. This, combined with working on a fair recruitment process that includes candidates from a diverse range of backgrounds, means that LADbible Group’s HR leaders must be on top form all the time.
In this exclusive interview with myGrapevine magazine, LADbible Group's Talent Business Partner, Adele Bridgeman – whose role has a special focus on recruitment – discusses the company's recruitment strategy from the very first step, including how their brand power plays a role in finding the best talent, and how the firm aggressively expanded its talent pool over the past two years.
